Do you have severe tooth damage, bone loss, or few or no teeth still intact? This post from Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark is for anyone whose mouth is in a world of hurt.
First off, we feel for you. We understand how severe dental issues impact you every day of your life.
Whatever the cause of the condition – chemotherapy, recreational drug use, eating disorder, severe mouth injury, disability, inadequate oral hygiene, or simply poor overall health – there is hope.
Restorative dentistry can renew your previously healthy, pleasing smile. You’ll regain the confidence to smile, eat, and speak normally. How would that impact your life?
Replacing missing teeth and adding bone through grafting restores underlying facial structure, improving or preventing that sunken look that occurs when teeth are gone and the jawbone recedes.
Dental implants are usually the best tooth replacement for anyone who is missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a strong foundation for the abutment and beautiful crown. Dental implants are indistinguishable from initial teeth in both form and function.
If you currently have dentures, talk to us about implant-anchored full or partial dentures. Significant improvements can be made even if you only get two or three tooth implants.
Crowns (sometimes called caps) are used when there is enough viable tooth structure that the tooth doesn’t need to be extracted. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured. A crown can correct a bite misalignment and is usually needed after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.
